Astoria Golf and Country Club
Hole 9

Par 5, 499 yards.  The only par five on the front-nine demands a heroic tee shot over water from the back tees.  Water and tall spruce trees guard the entire left perimeter of this hole, and since the left side is the fast side you must challenge the left side if you hope to get home in two.  The large dune on the right side is a nice safety net for players who wish to play the hole conservatively.  The green at #9 slopes from right to left.  Remember to borrow a little with your approach shot.  Whether you go for the green in two or three #9 is a good birdie opportunity.
